Hmm I f I were ya ..I coat it in fine leather or something like this (try a professional in this matter ) ...if its about some rubber like parts not try any petroleum based substance to clean it ...cause it might do more harm ...I try something on alcohol ..
if its only about some small parts you can try some tape like material to cover the parts that started to deteriorated and are sticky ...

I have a Yamaha RX-V465 receiver. Is the newer YDS-12 docking station compatible with this receiver? the YDS-12 seems to accept newer IPods.

Yes, it is compatible.

It has 2 modes of operation. For RX-V465 you need to select mode B. In this mode it is compatible with YDS-11, which is supported for RX-V465. But iPhone is not officially supported in this mode. But I have found on Yamaha website FAQ, where they claim that iPhone switched to Airplane mode worked well.

I was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got...

Missed the model number in your comment
the sony appears to have a longer zoom 105, the vivitar 85 the sony has 6 levels, vivitar 5 levels And the Sony talks about ttl control with wireless - which means you can use fully off the camera - if thats really the case I would buy the flash just for that feature - I have always used my flash guns off camera with brackets etc - reduces the chance of redeye, and gives a better effect ..
re price, in my comment you can see the vivitar at a much higher price then the $199
hope that helps a little
